Meat Beat Manifesto
...In Dub;
...In Dub 5.1 Surround
Cover ImageComing January 27th, the newest production from Meat Beat Manifesto releases on two discrete formats: CD and 5.1. Surround Sound DVD.

Taking the starting point and cues from several of the songs on last year's R.U.O.K? album, ...In Dub re-imagines and reinvents these, emerging well beyond the core ideas and with all the deep grooves, fx and rumbling basslines of the genre and then some! Five songs feature the one-take toasting talents of DJ Collage on the microphone, linking this ultra-modern music back to its Jamaican roots to express a unique continuum. The CD also features four new tracks and two alternate versions for a full dose of shattering electro-dub. The album also includes several completely fresh tracks along with new alternate versions for a double dose of sensory-shattering electro-dub. ...In Dub 5.1 Surround finds Jack Dangers controlling the joystick on six channels of sound to juggle, pitch, and place against the visual backdrop of original motion graphics created by longtime Dangers collaborator and video director, Ben Stokes (DJ Shadow, Meat Beat Manifesto, Public Enemy, De La Soul, The Orb). Jack invokes true sound-clashing sorcery within this wholly new medium and space-busting technology. The end result: sound unleashed and the listener placed at the heart of Meat Beat Manifesto music as never before possible.

...In Dub — CD and 5.1 Surround - DVD releases on Lakeshore/:run recordings in North America.
